Yeah, it was silly like a typical Homestar Runner cartoon. I liked how Coach Z said "Hey Strong Bid!", lol

Aw, that was kinda funny. I want a scratch-and-sniff dictionary. ; ;

Hehe, I get the feeling that sticking "-onsoon" onto the end of random words could confuse people really really badly. I almost want to try it.

Oh, and I love the Family Feud reference! <3

Not bad. Not as good as independent, but still not bad. I did like the references to record book and rock opera, and the Homsar easter egg made me laugh. I say 3.5/5, rounded up to 4 for the poll.

I liked it. It was very random in the fact that it jumped around to different parts a lot. 5/5! :cheatgrin:

I think this is actually the first good sbemail in since "Email Thunder" -- so it's almost been a year since the last good sbemail. The subject totally worked for me because I do stuff like make up my own words myself! In fact, I wish I'd sent this email! And it gets bonus points for the word 'sawesome.' And with the suffixes, I'm going to use those from now on. -rnado, -onsoon, etc -- EPIC WIN. I'll give it . . .

:senor: :senor: :senor: / :senor: :senor: :senor:

So, 3/3. (I look for three things in a sbemail -- plot, substance, and humor. It has all three, at least in my opinion.)

Okay. Pom Pom has appeared in three toons in a row. I am a happy Monkeytender. Not to mention Homsar's amazing show in the Easter Egg.

Although, I actually think some of the stuff in this e-mail was a bit too random. I mean, caramel sauce on a dictionary? Really?

I gives it a 4.

4 out of 5. I don't know why, but these sbemails don't have that type of humor the pre-hremail sbemails had. On the other hand, TBC seem to be slowly coming back, which is good! :mrgreen:

Talk!

I like it more than the last sbemail. I give it a 4. Homsar should get an easter egg at the end of every toon.

Well, maybe not every toon, but I think it would be interesting if he hardly ever appeared in the normal toon but almost appeared in every toon as an easter egg to say something that almost seems to have something to do with a vague idea of what the toon was abo--I'M GOING TO START SAYING SEVEN BUCKS-FOREST-FIRE!

Dang. I was hoping for a downloadable SB dictionary at the end. Meh.

That was still awesome. The random Family Feud scene really made it great.

4/5

And, for the record, MY PREDICTION WAS CORRECT *Ding*

What the Pfargtl? I mean, I like it when SB gets silly and all, but this one seemed pointless, like, a different kind of random. Not the "I'm playing women's lacrosse" random, more like, "Family Feud references for no apparent reason" random. Randomly random.

An email about portmanteaus? Complete with plentiful inside references, and Homsar? PERFECT! 10/10

It confuses me when people say this. Just because there isn't a number there, doesn't mean it isn't obvious that "sawsome" is better than "gutterance".

What :homsar: said in the easter egg was *gasp* almost coherent!

I was slightly hopeful that clicking the "Where's An Egg II" logo would bring up a playable version.

My favorite part was probably when Homestar dissed city (comma) state in the easter egg. Sorry, Pom Pom, guess you can't win them all. :P

Loved the Family Feud reference. Especially since I've been watching it lately on GSN. Speaking of, the remark in the Wiki article isn't entirely correct. While 100 is the standard max score for the main game, what's being shown in the e-mail is the Fast Money round, where two members of the winning family both take a quick answer at the same five serveys. There is no max score in that, but the goal is for both members to aquire a combined total of 200 points.

By the way, does Trivia Time ever not appear in Homestar's kitchen?

Right, let's see...

A bit too random and free-associative, perhaps. And a few too many inside jokes - "Oh, that looks sinful" will make absolutely zero sense to new viewers.

On the other hand, it was excellent somehow. I found myself laughing throughout the entire thing. Even the bizarre frequency of random interruptions was hilarious, and I think it would actually work well if they decided to use that as the new style.

So, I don't know. I'm somewhere between a 3 and a 5; I guess I'll go with 4/5 for now.

I say it was a great email. A couple too many inside jokes, but they used them well (still not good for first-time viewers). Looks like the wallpaper of the computer is the new running gag.

Alright, first post!

I've been a lurker of the forums for about a year. I finally decided to join because of this sbemail.

Why, you may ask?

Because back when the first hremail appeared, I decided email Strong Bad so that way, if he returned, mine would be one of the first emails to appear. This is my email. You might not believe but I swear this is mine.

By the way, the reason the name is Costrick is because of Cosmo of the Fairly Oddparents and Patrick Star. And yes I really do use sawesome in conversations.

Good, not great. Definately had it's moments, like the Homsar easter egg.

Thanks for typing my review for me. He didn't really, but I agree with him on everything and now I won't have to type. And Costrick, you got any proof?

I really wish I did but I sent my email on a closed account 2 months ago. Sorry :-( That was really stupid of me. I don't blame you if you don't believe me.
